Justin Krebs

A strong performance by Justin Krebs led a large contingent of York County runners who competed in the 2017 Boston Marathon on Monday morning.

Krebs, 42, of York, was the top local finisher, crossing the finish line in 2 hours, 44 minutes, 32 seconds, good enough for 313th place overall in a field of more than 30,000 runners. He finished as the 286th male, was 33rd in his age division and had the seventh-best finish among all males from Pennsylvania.

The York Suburban boys’ cross country teams from 1997 through 2000 set the school standard — four District 3 Class 2-A championships in a row.

Saturday at Big Spring High School, this year’s group of Trojans will seek to tie the school record by winning their fourth consecutive district title.

“It’s  a goal, and it’s definitely achievable,” said Peter Wagner, the only senior among the seven Suburban runners who earned places in in last week’s York-Adams All-League Run. “I’m so honored to be part of this program for three in a row, and, I would love to get four in a row.”

GETTYSBURG — For Maddie McLain and Patrick Jacobson, it was their time to be in the spotlight.

McLain, the Eastern York High School standout who finished second to a senior, Maddie Ferner of Kennard-Dale, in last year’s York-Adams Girls’ All-League Cross Country Run, crossed the finish line first this year.

Jacobson, meanwhile, one of the favorites in the boys’ competition, delivered on his potential and won the race in his final opportunity. The Dallastown High School senior put up a time of 17 minutes, 1 second, five seconds ahead of Bermudian Springs junior Chad Long.

SPRING GROVE — It doesn’t take much to motivate the York Suburban boys’ cross country team.

The Trojans’ runners are both a smart and competitive group that is almost always well aware of where it stands in relation to its goals.

That doesn’t mean, however, that head coach Ron Herman doesn’t give his team some reminders.

Such was the case Tuesday afternoon when the Trojans entered their final team meet of the regular season at Spring Grove High School with one more item to check off their list. With York-Adams League Division II rival Gettysburg tied with Suburban atop the division standings heading into the meet, the Trojans were determined to get the better of the Warriors in order to secure another division title.

Will this be the year that the Dallastown boys’ soccer team gets the better of York-Adams League Division I rival Central York?

That question will get answered Thursday evening when the two clubs finish up the regular season.

The perennial contenders battled to a scoreless tie in their first match-up of the season at Central York a few weeks ago. As a result, the Panthers and Wildcats are currently deadlocked atop the Division I standings with 9-0-1 records.

Thursday, they’ll meet again, this time at Dallastown.



Fairfield’s Lindsey Lytle set her second course record in the span of a week for the Green Knights in a cross country meet at Red Lion on Tuesday.

Lytle finished in a time of 20 minutes, 21 seconds. The previous record was 21:17.

York Suburban won the girls’ meet, thanks to four runners finishing fourth through seventh. The Lions took home second, behind Keirsten Lloyd’s runner-up finish. South Western, the Green Knights and Bermudian Springs rounded out the top five.

Coming into Tuesday’s girls’ cross country showdown vs. Eastern York, the York Suburban Trojans had an important question to answer.

According to coach Dan VanHouwe, that inquiry was: “What do we have?”

The Trojans quickly found out, when top runner Courtney Ohl was forced off the course because of illness.

Suburban responded with a team effort that utilized its depth, resulting in a crucial victory, a 27-32 decision over Eastern York at a meet at Northeastern High School.
